57 Cent Church

57 Cent Church

A little girl stood near a small church from which she had been turned away
because it was ‘too crowded.’

‘I can’t go to Sunday School,’ she sobbed to the pastor as he walked by.

Seeing her shabby, unkempt appearance, the pastor guessed the reason and,
taking her by the hand, took her inside and found a place for her in the Sunday
school class. The child was so happy that they found room for her, and she went
to bed that night thinking of the children who have no place to worship Jesus.

Some two years later, this child lay dead in one of the poor tenement
buildings. Her parents called for the kindhearted pastor who had befriended
their daughter to handle the final arrangements.

As her poor little body was being moved, a worn and crumpled red purse was
found which seemed to have been rummaged from some trash dump.

Inside was found 57 cents and a note, scribbled in childish handwriting, which
read: ‘This is to help build the little church bigger so more children can go
to Sunday School.’

For two years she had saved for this offering of love.

When the pastor tearfully read that note, he knew instantly what he would do.
Carrying this note and the cracked, red pocketbook to the pulpit, he told the
story of her unselfish love and devotion.

He challenged his deacons to get busy and raise enough money for the larger
building.

But the story does not end there….

A newspaper learned of the story and published It. It was read by a wealthy
realtor who offered them a parcel of land worth many thousands.

When told that the church could not pay so much, he offered to sell it to the
little church for 57 cents.

Church members made large donations. Checks came from far and wide..

Within five years the little girl’s gift had increased to $250,000.00–a huge
sum for that time (near the turn of the century). Her unselfish love had paid
large dividends.

When you are in the
city of
Philadelphia , look up Temple Baptist Church , with a
seating capacity of 3,300. And be sure to visit TempleUniversity, where thousands
of students are educated.

Have a look, too, at the Good Samaritan Hospital and at a Sunday School
building which houses hundreds of beautiful children, built so that no child in
the area will ever need to be left outside during Sunday school time.

In one of the rooms of this building may be seen the picture of the sweet face
of the little girl whose 57 cents, so sacrificially saved, made such remarkable
history. Alongside of it is a portrait of her kind pastor, Dr. Russell H.
Conwell, author of the book, ‘Acres of Diamonds’.

This is a true story, which goes to show WHAT GOD CAN DO WITH 57 CENTS.

Congress-Monkeys-It’s always been that way

By , June 15, 2011 3:50 pm

If you start with a cage containing five monkeys and inside the cage, hang a banana on a string from the top and then you place a set of stairs under the banana, before long a monkey will go to the stairs and climb toward the banana.

As soon as he touches the stairs, you spray all the other monkeys with cold water. After a while another monkey makes an attempt with same result … all the other monkeys are sprayed with cold water.  Pretty soon when another monkey tries to climb the stairs, the other monkeys will try to prevent it.

Now, put the cold water away.

Remove one monkey from the cage and replace it with a new one. The new monkey sees the banana and attempts to climb the stairs. To his shock, all of the other monkeys beat the crap out of him. After another attempt and attack, he knows that if he tries to climb the stairs he will be assaulted.

Next, remove another of the original five monkeys, replacing it with a new one.  The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked. The previous newcomer takes part in the punishment… with enthusiasm.

Then, replace a third original monkey with a new one, followed by a fourth, then the fifth.  Every time the newest monkey takes to the stairs he is attacked. Most of the monkeys that are beating him up have no idea why they were not permitted to climb the stairs.  Neither do they know why they are participating in the beating of the newest monkey.

Finally, having replaced all of the original monkeys, none of the remaining monkeys will have ever been sprayed with cold water. Nevertheless, none of the monkeys will try to climb the stairway for the banana.

Why, you ask?  Because in their minds…that is the way it has always been!

This, my friends, is how Congress operates… and is why, from time to time, all of the monkeys need to be REPLACED AT THE SAME TIME.

Christianity is now the target of persecution…

By , June 14, 2011 6:48 pm

Christianity is now the target of persecution…   THIS IS AS GOOD AS IT GETS! GOD BLESS EVERYONE WHO READS THIS AND PASSES IT ON.
I FIND IT INTERESTING THAT A HIGH SCHOOL PRINCIPAL CAN SEE THE PROBLEM, BUT OUR SOCIETY CANNOT. 

 
 

Tennessee Football This is a statement that was read over the PAsystem at the football game at Roane  County High School , Kingston , Tennessee  by school Principal, Jody McLeod

  

“It has always been the custom at Roane County High School football games, to say a prayer and play the National Anthem, to honor God and Country.”

  

Due to a recent ruling by the Supreme Court, I am told that saying a Prayer is a violation of Federal Case Law. As I understand the law at this time, I can use this public facility to approve of sexual perversion and call it “an alternate life style,” and if someone is offended, that’s OK.

  

I can use it to condone sexual promiscuity, by dispensing condoms and calling it, “safe sex.” If someone is offended, that’s OK.

  

I can even use this public facility to present the merits of killing an unborn baby as a “viable! means of birth control.” If someone is offended, no problem…

  

I can designate a school day as “Earth Day” and involve students in activities to worship religiously and praise the goddess “Mother Earth” and call it “ecology..”

  

I can use literature, videos and presentations in the classroom that depicts people with strong, traditional Christian convictions as “simple minded” and “ignorant” and call it “enlightenment..”

  

However, if anyone uses this facility to honor GOD and to ask HIM to Bless this event with safety and good sportsmanship, then Federal Case Law is violated.

  

This appears to be inconsistent at best, and at worst, diabolical. 

Apparently, we are to be tolerant of everything and anyone, except GOD and HIS Commandments.

  

Nevertheless , as a school principal, I frequently ask staff and students to abide by rules with which they do not necessarily agree. For me to do otherwise would be inconsistent at best, and at worst, hypocritical. I suffer from that affliction enough unintentionally. I certainly do not need to add an intentional transgression.

  

For this reason, I shall “Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s,” and refrain from praying at this time.

  

” However, if you feel inspired to honor, praise and thank GOD and ask HIM,in the name of JESUS, to Bless this event, please feel free to do so
.. As far as I know, that’s not against the law—-yet.”

  

One by one, the people in the stands bowed their heads, held hands with one another and began to pray.

  

They prayed in the stands. They prayed in the team huddles. They prayed at the concession stand and they prayed in the Announcer’s Box!

  

The only place they didn’t pray was in the Supreme Court of the United States of America- the Seat of “Justice” in the “one nation, under GOD.”

  

Somehow, Kingston , Tennessee Remembered what so many have forgotten. We are given the Freedom OF Religion, not the Freedom 
FROM Religion. Praise GOD that HIS remnant remains!

  

JESUS said, “If you are ashamed of ME before men, then I will be ashamed of you before MY FATHER..”  

  

If you are not ashamed, pass this on .

  

I’m not one bit ashamed to pass this on, Are you?

 
 


THIS IS AS GOOD AS IT GETS!  GOD BLESS EVERYONE WHO READS THIS AND PASSES IT ON.

Paid In Full By Jesus

By , June 10, 2011 6:30 pm
 
After living what I felt was a ‘decent’ life, my time on earth came to the end.

The first thing I remember is sitting on a bench in the waiting room of what I thought to be a court house.

The doors opened and I was instructed to come in and have a seat by the defense table.

As I looked around I saw the ‘prosecutor.’

He was a villainous looking gent who snarled as he stared at me. He definitely was the most evil person I have ever seen.

I sat down and looked to my left and there sat My Attorney, kind and gentle looking man whose appearance seemed so familiar to me, I felt I knew Him.

The corner door flew open and there appeared the Judge in full flowing robes.

He commanded an awesome presence as He moved across the room I couldn’t take my eyes off of Him.

As He took His seat behind the bench, He said, ‘Let us begin.’

The prosecutor rose and said, ‘My name is Satan and I am here to show you why this man belongs in hell.’

He proceeded to tell of lies that I told, things that I stole, and In the past when I cheated others. Satan told of other horrible perversions that were once in my life and the more he spoke, the further down in my seat I sank.

I was so embarrassed that I couldn’t look at anyone, even my own Attorney, as the Devil told of sins that even I had completely forgotten about.

As upset as I was at Satan for telling all these things about me, I was equally upset at My Attorney who sat there silently not offering any form of defense at all.

I know I had been guilty of those things, but I had done some good in my life – couldn’t that at least equal out part of the harm I’d done?

Satan finished with a fury and said, ‘This man belongs in hell, he is guilty of all that I have charged and there is not a person who can prove otherwise.’

When it was His turn, My Attorney first asked if He might approach the bench. The Judge allowed this over the strong objection of Satan, and beckoned Him to come forward.

As He got up and started walking, I was able to see Him in His full splendor and majesty.

I realized why He seemed so familiar; this was Jesus representing me, my Lord and my Savior.

He stopped at the bench and softly said to the Judge, ‘HI, DAD,’ and then He turned to address the court.

‘Satan was correct in saying that this man had sinned, I won’t deny any of these allegations. And, yes, the wage of sin is death, and this man deserves to be punished.’

Jesus took a deep breath and turned to His Father with outstretched arms and proclaimed, ‘However, I died on the cross so that this person might have eternal life and he has accepted Me as his Savior, so he is Mine.’

My Lord continued with, ‘His name is written in the Book of Life, and no one can snatch him from Me.
‘Satan still does not understand yet. This man is not to be given justice, but rather mercy.’

As Jesus sat down, He quietly paused, looked at His Father and said, ‘There is nothing else that needs to be done. I’ve done it all.’

The Judge lifted His mighty hand and slammed the gavel down. The following words bellowed from His lips…..

‘This man is free. The penalty for him has already been paid in full. Case dismissed.’
As my Lord led me away, I could hear Satan ranting and raving, ‘I won’t give up, I will win the next one.’
I asked Jesus as He gave me my instructions where to go next, ‘Have you ever lost a case?’

Christ lovingly smiled and said, ‘Everyone that has come to Me and asked Me to represent them has received the same verdict as you, ~Paid In Full.’

If you do not pass this along  absolutely nothing will happen .

Passing this on to anyone you consider a friend,
(as I have done here), will bless you both.

‘Stop telling God how big your storm is.
Instead, tell the storm how big your God is!

Where are the jobs

By , June 8, 2011 7:41 pm

This afternoon I was listening to Barrack Obama give his wonderful campaign speech? He stated that the job growth 2002-2008 was the worst since WWII. If I were President Obama I would immediately fire all my advisors and speech writers. He is not only wrong but so far off it is embarrassing for someone of his statue. (1) The worst job growth belongs to Reid/Pelosi/Obama and is for the period 2009-present. (2) The prior worst job growth belongs to the First Bush, Not George W. Bush. (3) Two of the three “good Job Growth” periods since the 60’s belongs to democrats (Kennedy and Clinton) and one to the Republicans (Reagan). (4) The forth great job growth belongs to George W. Bush, as is evidenced below.

{Business wire from Washington dated March 10 2008: today, the Bureau of Labor Statistics released new jobs figures. 18,000 jobs created in December 2007. Since August 2003, more than 8.3 million jobs have been created, with more than 1.3 million jobs created throughout 2007. Our economy has now added jobs for 52 straight months, the longest period of uninterrupted job growth on record. Unemployment remains low at 5 %}.

Maybe I’m just a little slow at fully accepting the lies and spin of the left; but it would appear that all of our economic problems and unemployment chaos really started when Reid/Pelosi/Obama took control of our country. A little bit of history-the good times started when Daschle was voted out of the Senate.

Keep in mind that Bush inherited a mild recession from Clinton and shortly turned it around (with two wars and 9-11). Obama inherited a recession (created by Franks/Dodd under the leadership of Reid-Pelosi) and turned it into a nightmare which will end in a Full Blown Depression by the end of 2012/early 2013.

8 June 2011

I wrote the above back on 08 September 2010

From Whitehouse.gov dated 17 June 2010: (almost one year ago)

“With tens of thousands of projects funded and millions of Americans on the job today, it’s hard to believe that it’s only been 16 months since President Obama signed the {American Recovery and Reinvestment Act}. And with so many jobs saved and created already, you might think that the Recovery Act’s greatest impact is behind us”

The greatest impact is around the corner and it is nothing less than a full blown “Depression”

Nothing that happens now will have any impact on the recovery that Obama speaks of-because-there is NO RECOVERY, there never was; it was always a lie, a hoax, a scheme and nothing short of the Liberals and Democrats rewarding the labor unions, wall street and any business that was kind to them.

New World Order part 1/8

By , June 8, 2011 5:58 pm

8 June 2011

I wrote the below back on 28 Feb 2010; I have to ask in all honesty; qwhere is the “peace” in the middle east. Is not Obama making it clear that will support the terroriosts in middle east before he will ever support Israel.

For the Democrats and Obama: I accept that most of you are secular and don’t believe that GOD is in command, but it really doesn’t matter what any of us believes. The end result is always what God has purposed for that precise moment. America, God turned his back on this administration last April when in less than two weeks our President proclaimed that we were not a Christian nation and bowed at the seat of Satan, yes Mecca is the seat of Satan. Some 3500 years ago in 1491 BC the most powerful empire with the most powerful military thought they were only dealing with a “nobody” group of Hebrews, Egypt lost, they were dealing with God. King David and King Solomon both had great passions when it came to women and David even sent his top general sent into the midst of battle to die so he (King David) could have the general’s wife; yet these two kings were loved of God and greatly rewarded. On the other hand King Saul only refused to take the head of the king of Amalek and for that he was disowned of God and the kingdom was taken away from him, Amalek was the perpetual enemy of God dating back to the Exodus and Saul had been told of God to spare no one. After the Roman Empire fell there was still some form of that empire around but it would have been recognized as West Rome and East Rome (east would have represented the Middle East). A new and very young ruler in West Rome set out to reunited the Roman Empire and actually doing well and there was not a military strong enough around to stop him. But God was not ready for the fourth beast. In 538 AD just as it appeared that the Roman Empire would be revived the Plague kills 100 million and over half of the population of Europe died, and so did Rome. Barack Obama, God turned his back on you last April and all of the baby killers, gay activists, Hollywood liberals, labor unions, earth people, “green” activists, conservative haters and your inner circle of “America” haters cannot save your presidency; only God can. For whatever its worth, everything you wanted will come to be, God just isn’t ready for it at this time. You can still do it, just not without God.

I wrote the above back in October 2010. God sets things in motion for a future date and nothing man can do will change that motion or the events thereof. The present situation in the Middle East which involves the Muslim Nations is not revealing the true outcome which comes afterwards. On the surface it would appear that the poor suppressed underclass in those countries simply want a better life, rights, and some form of democracy. I can assure you beyond any doubt that will NOT be the outcome. (1) The cost of energy (fuel-oil) will cripple most nations, (2) Muslim theology void of any individual rights will dominate these countries, Iran has already flexed its muscle will soon begin to consolidate its power in the troubled areas and (3) the true intent of God’s Plan will begin to take form: “with Iran leading the charge most of these countries (including Turkey) will make an attempt of achieving their ultimate goal of wiping Israel off the face of the earth. With most of Israel’s backers financially crippled, Israel will mostly be alone; but that is good-no help means anybody holding you back are not present. Israel WILL NOT be defeated and the way is prepared for Israel for subdue three nations and bring six into their fold. And therefore is the beginning of the end-the forth beast with ten horns.

I will be posting often on my new series, New World Order-Not What or who you might think, and should have the complete min-book available this Fall. Stay tuned as I will try and post every Sunday evening.
